“This is my sixth year as a Biggest Morning Tea ambassador and I'm delighted to help raise awareness for Cancer Council's important work. Many of my close friends and family have been touched directly, or indirectly, by cancer, and I know the devastation that it can cause. We have had some great events in the last couple of years, including Biggest Morning Tea’s at the Langham, Melbourne. Myself and my wife, Cath, look forward to being involved again this year. Lending my time and resources is the least I can do for this vital cause and I am proud to support Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea. Besides, who doesn’t love a cuppa!”
